How the EazyPod Automatic works
The concept of the EazyPod Automatic is simple and yet innovative. Water enters via the inlet and enters the outer chamber, which runs around the entire circumference of the EazyPod. Between the outer chamber and the inner chamber, there is a stainless steel perforated screen. These perforations are situated in the lower half of the screen and around its entire face. This means that when the water passes from the outer to inner chamber, a downward and upward flow is created. This causes many of the larger solids to settle in the base of the outer chamber, due to the force of gravity.
The size of the perforations will not allow large mechanical waste to enter the inner chamber, thus acting as a first stage mechanical filter. The inner chamber holds 18 litres of static K1 Micro media. As the water enters the inner chamber, the fine smaller solids become entrapped in the K1 Micro. After passing through the K1 Micro, the clean water then rises and overflows into the inner return pipe. From here it returns to the pond via the return outlet.
The EazyPod Automatic filtration system gives water quality and clarity that surpasses all expectations. The nature and volume of the K1 Micro means, that when static, apart from being a very efficient mechanical filter, there is more than enough surface area for beneficial bacteria to colonise. Therefore on a smaller pond, the EazyPod Automatic is an excellent complete filter.
1. Pond Pump. Please ensure that the pump’s maximum actual flow rate is no more than the specified limits.
2. Pipe work from the unit’s waste valves to the intended discharge point. This can be rigid pipe work or a simple flexible hose of at least 1inch diameter.
3. Mains cable (3 core) of an appropriate length to connect the EazyPod Automatic control box to your power socket.
Installation – PUMP FED ONLY
EazyPod Automatic can only be installed on PUMP FED set-ups.
Pump Fed Set-Ups
By this we mean that if your pump is going to be used to supply the water to the filter, and the filtered water then returns back into your pond via gravity, i.e. down a waterfall, or through a large diameter pipe, this is referred to as PUMP FED (i.e. the water is fed to the filter using a pump).
